'Plump for natural skincare not soap' to stop dry winter skin

The winter is playing havoc with some people's skin, but rather than covering it up with long sleeves, ladies should embrace natural skincare.

Sally Penford, education manager at the International Dermal Institute, told the Flintshire Chronicle that central heating dries skin out in winter, especially if women are going from freezing cold outdoors to hot indoors.

The expert advised against using soap, as it has an acidic pH, saying that it strips your skin barrier, leading 'your skin vulnerable'.

Exfoliating scrubs are advised, to slog off dead cells and brighten skin, while SPF is another thing that ladies should look for in their natural skincare products.

Feet should be lavished with moisturiser, as they are likely to suffer the worst in cold weather. Dr Susan Mayou, a consultant dermatologist, told the newspaper: 'Frequent application of an effective moisturiser acts as a barrier against the cold and can prevent dryness.'

Moisturiser on the hands will also help to nourish nails, stopping them cracking and become dry.ADNFCR-2885-ID-19585652-ADNFCR
